A lumpy key lime with a circumference of 14cm is racing south down the Caltrain tracks at 5m/s. How long will it take to burst into flames?

Just how flammable is the skin of a lime? Can you get enough friction from the irregular surface? Why am I taking this question seriously?

Will it reach the San Jose Diridon station in time for lunch?

Probably not. There's not really much food at the station anyway, so it would have to roll a while longer to find something to eat anyway.

You are sent on a secret mission that involves measuring the rate at which jelly doughnuts get sucked into black holes. What is your handbag or receptacle of choice for transporting the doughnuts into space?

My Care Bears lunch box. It's not air tight, but it's cute.

What do you hope to see in this group, in terms of activities and events, or just in general?

A chance to hang out with like-minded women doing stuff my husband isn't interested in or that I just need non-guy time to enjoy, like gaming, movies, shopping.
